With a great location & reputation, I was disappointed with il-fortizza. The place was grubby, very unlike a Maltese restaurant, the service was friendly but disorganised and the food was ordinary. My son had a hawaii pizza which was surprisingly poor for the fortizza's reputation of good quality pizza. My daughter had two big pork chops which were very good... More

Great service staff friendly and helpful. The chicken supreme was to die for, the chicken melted in your mouth, the cheese sauce was excellent. My son enjoyed his pizza and my husband loved the streak. We have eaten here a couple of time. Food has been great each time. Value for money. Would recommend to anyone.

I agree with most of the comments. The food is very good but the staff are all grumpy. It's as if we bothered them when we asked for a table. I believe the staff are sometimes a main point to return to the place. I might give it another try because of the food. Hopefully it might improve

I dined here with my wife and her friend. The setting was adequate, however the table we sat at was dirty and not cleaned after the last meal. The service was quick and delivery of food was fine. However, the rabbit was hard and unpalatable and my burger was nothing special. However, the seafood platter was exceptional, and is the... More

Had to swap my greasy, cheesy chair for a clean one to sit down. Waitress grumpy. Watched her with others, didn't crack a smile all night. Goats cheese starter okay, his garlic bread with cheese was just as described, no surprises. Three cities pizza for me - okay but salami picante had no flavour at all. When it advertises itself...

We went there to see the football final. Drinks took ages to be served and did not all come at the same time. To add insult to injury, they were not chilled enough. We politely asked for ice as the ice in the glasses had melted till they had gave them to us. But they said that ice was finished!... More

What a roller coaster of a meal. The place looks great with plenty staff. Unfortunately they seem more interested in chatter than serving!! The staff member who served us he also seemed more interested in giving us his woes than taking our order. But in saying that he was nice. My mums lamb shank was not cooked properly so had... More

Food was great. We had pizza. Lovely and fresh. The service was 'OK', no check back when we had our food. No asking for more drinks when taking the empties away. But a lovely view and tasty food.

Thank Sophie O
